Freeze Warnings remain in effect for the mountains Thursday morning with frost advisories outside of the mountains for all counties north and west of Charlotte, as well as Rowan and Cabarrus counties.

Daybreak readings will be back in the chilly 30s and 40s Thursday morning as you head out the door for work and school.

Other than the chilly start, Thursday and Friday will be two beautiful days with plenty of sunshine to go around and highs in the mid 60s Thursday and the low 70s on Friday.

The weekend will likely bring a period of rain. A cold front will approach and bring showers any time from later Saturday afternoon, into early Sunday morning. So, as of now, Saturday morning and most of Sunday look be dry and the best for outdoor plans.
